    I have been thinking about a basic 1911 for some time now. And i like the Rock Island Armory version. But I have been able to resist the temptation for some time. Even so I have followed the 1911 forum because you never know when you might learn something new. From time to time I would see a positive comment on the gun and the temptation would grow. Still I resisted. Then recently a GT'er started a thread on the RIA and in came the comments. Good basic gun. Nice first 1911. I love mine...blah , blah, blah. TROUBLEMAKERS ! I found one that was unfired in the box with Pachmar(spelling) grips for four hundred bucks. And I bought it. Now I kinda like a few other 1911's but I'm not saying which. I'm afraid you guys will talk them up and i'll have to sell my first born.:supergrin:

    This is how the sickness starts. You get curious. You wonder what you're missing out on. You fondle one.....realizing how ridiculous a 1911 trigger feels compared to Tupperware and wonder how you've missed out on this. You buy a "beginner" 1911 to see how you like it. Then you get the urge to upgrade and/or tinker with yours. You say forget it and buy a little nicer 1911. Then you are hanging out with your 1911 buddies at the range and start to notice semi-customs. Then you make the mistake of shooting a buddie's semi-custom and before you know it.....you are dropping $2k+ on one. Then start looking at the next one....

    Welcome to the addiction my friend. Enjoy the ride...

    This is exactly how it happens. Ask how Hokie and I know.
    Oh and when you get tired of dealing with the low level dealers you can go the KINGPIN migunslingers.com $100 is all you need to start your journey to the poor house and possibly this if your married.

    Ask Hokie about that one.:rofl:

    The worst thing you can do is hang out here. Don't start talking to Dave (DRC) and definitely don't go on George's site (migunslingers.com). Stay away from bac1023 and Quack and don't look at any pictures on this site. Your bank account and your marriage will thank you later.

    ps....my wife hates Quack. :rofl:

    This is exactly why I stay away from truck and hooker forums. I can't afford a new model every year and the wifey poo knows how to use a gun well enough.
